The safety of all participants, the continuous medical checks, the social distancing, the hygienic preparations, wearing masks and all of the controls are the responsibility of the local organizers in Sarajevo to avoid any Covid-19 cases in the event.
Division General Mustafa Hajrulahovic Talijan was Bosnia & Herzegovina’s commander and hero in the end of the last century and a new boxing tournament was named after him which shows his excellent popularity in Sarajevo. Bosnia & Herzegovina hosted the Euro Cup on February this year but their association had to cancel the Mostar International Youth Tournament from May. Their second international competition in 2020 could be the Mustafa Hajrulahovic Talijan Memorial Tournament.
The tournament will be held at the Dom Mladih Skenderija Sports Centre which is the traditional venue of the event. Bosnia & Herzegovina’s Alen Rahimic and Kosovo’s Shpetim Bajoku proved the best performances in the finals of the Mustafa Hajrulahovic Talijan Memorial Tournament in 2019 and both boxers are preparing to defend their thrones.
